    Colorado’s Roxborough State Park to Begin Road Improvement Work

    Littleton, CO – Douglas County will be grading the Roxborough State Park entrance road on Monday, Sept. 26 and applying a surface sealant, Durablend, on Tuesday, Sept. 27. Motorists should be aware that Durablend makes the road very wet and muddy during the drying period. And, Durablend can coat vehicles with thick mud that is hard to get off.

    To avoid delays due to traffic on Sept. 26 and Sept.27, visitors should consider visiting late in the afternoon or waiting until Wednesday, Sept. 28 to allow plenty of time for drying before they come out. Please call the Roxborough State Park Visitor Center at 303-973-3959 for road updates.
